Loki Trailer Breakdown: We Saw Some Crazy Things That You Probably Didn’t

While we’re only halfway into Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the hype for Marvel Studios’ next Disney+ series, Loki, has already started to build.

The God Of Mischief has made a return. Disney dropped a second trailer for Marvel’s Loki which is an upcoming TV series by Marvel Studios. Before proceeding into the trailer’s breakdown, we advise you to watch the trailer below if you haven’t already.

The trailer reveals some crazy insights about the events that followed up after Loki made his last escape in Avengers: Endgame. The last time we saw him was when the Avengers traveled back in time to 2012 and he disappeared with the Tessaract. Even though Loki was killed by the Mad Titan in the initial minutes of Avengers: Infinity War, the trailer suggests to us something totally different as the MCU is based on comic books, where death is something of a revolving door.

Here’s a breakdown of the trailer with all the big reveals that were made:

1. The trailer of the series kicks off after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when the squad had traveled back in time to 2012 and an unfortunate *SMASH* led to Loki’s escape with the Tesseract. 

2. If you look keenly enough, you can spot what appears to be a Skrull standing at a desk when Loki is brought in. Skrulls will also be at the center of an upcoming Marvel series called Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull named Talos.

3. Loki is taken to the Time Variance Authority (TVA), which is a group of people who look after the timeline. In the comics, the TVA has dedicated itself to keeping up with every reality that exists and making sure nothing goes wrong. They tell Loki that he created multiple realities after stealing the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame

4. Marvel is known for giving attention to detail. If you observe keenly, you can spot a sign reading “TVA Archives”

5. In one of the scenes of the trailer a poster is visible behind Loki that reads, “Behave! Clock Cleaners” It’s likely to be a reference to the TVA staff who go in and fix the timeline.

6. Was it just me or you felt the same energy as Loki’s iconic, “I’ve been falling” moment from Thor: Ragnarok when he falls on the chair?

7. When Loki is asked to sign the document proving he’s said, “This is absurd,” you can see “Variant: L1130” at the top. This is likely the TVA number/classification for this past version of Loki.

8. This is probably the same reason why Loki’s TVA jumpsuit says “Variant” on the back.

9. This doesn’t really join any dots but you see that this TVA employee has a mug with his cat’s face printed on it. 

10. Mobius (played by Owen Wilson) tells Loki that when he stole the Tesseract he broke reality due to which the timeline has split in multiple places. This is exactly what the Ancient One explained Doctor Banner in Avengers: Endgame.

11. In one of the snippets of the trailer, a blurred vision of a Roxxcart store can be seen in the background. Roxxcart is a grocery and general store establishment associated with Roxxon Corporation, which has been mentioned throughout the MCU.

12. When Loki spawns into a reality, you can find a broken  Avengers Tower falling in the background. 

13. While Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s character is being kept pretty under wraps, we get a lot of her glimpses in this trailer. In the official photos released by Marvel, she’s credited as “Judge Renslayer.”

14. If we’re going with Gugu playing Renslayer, this is HUGE. In the comics, Ravonna Renslayer is linked to Kang the Conqueror, a Marvel villain who jumps through time.

15. The series seems to be playing a lot with the timeline and there appears to be a reality where Loki is seen seated on the throne of Asgard as a king. He can be seen in his usual Loki outfit in that scene.

16. Loki’s suit and “Loki for President” pin is a direct nod to Vote Loki Issue #1 from 2016. In the comics, he expresses a desire to be the president of the United States.

17. After ages we saw Loki using his magic while fighting. After a tremendous dose of magic in WandaVision, Loki could be another follow-up to sorcery. Just like Wanda, we haven’t seen Loki harness all of his magical abilities either.

18. In one of the final scenes of the trailer, you can see Loki talking to a woman who resembles Black Widow a lot. However, it could even be the introduction of Sophia Di Martino’s rumored character of Lady Loki
